Compelled to forego the Cayman Islands Netball Association's 2009 primary school season because they had no uniforms, Bodden Town Primary's A and B netball teams beamed as they modelled their new kits.

The new uniforms were purchased with a personal $1,100 donation from the Minister of Sports, the Hon. Mark Scotland; and MLA Dwayne Seymour, both of whom represent Bodden Town in the Legislative Assembly.

In return for the donation, four team members presented a thank-you card and framed team photo to Mr. Seymour on Friday, 19 November.

"Considering the economic crunch, we really appreciate Messrs. Scotland and Seymour's contribution," said the school's Acting Deputy Principal and netball coach Kimberly Litrico. "We haven't had new uniforms for seven years, and they just didn't survive after the 2008 season."

Wishing team members well in their approaching elimination rounds, Mr. Seymour commented, "I hope they'll be motivated by the new uniforms and colours to bring home the gold." (GIS)
